Handmade & Hand Painted Chinese Porcelain
The manufacture of porcelain in China is said to have commenced around 206 B.C. to 25 A.D. and there can be no doubt that China exported porcelain from very early dates. Marco Polo saw it being made, and states it was sent all over the world.
Porcelain is much finer than other clay ceramics, so thin as to be translucent. Its white color can be painted in many colors. Porcelain is one of the most highly prized products from China, and in fact came to be called “china.”
It takes approximately 3 days for one cup to be made from start to finish.
Antique Chinese Wooden Artifacts
The Wooden pieces in the photographs are mainly from the Shanxi Province. The dressing cabinets would have been made for rich family in the past. The carving work is very accurate and beautiful. It represents some landscapes and scenes of the Chinese past life. Sometimes, some symbols representing good luck and long life also are carved on the wood, all depending on the choice of the family that ordered the piece.
